    Main Panel Annunciators

    Anyone doing this with Phidgets LED64? I know Jonathan uses Phidgets for the PMsystems. I've looked through PDowsons offsets, and some from PM, but don't find what I need. Can anyone kick me in the right direction, maeining to use this card. Thanks in advance.

    Phids

    Hey Rodney, Have you looked at FS2Phidgets? I think this would be the way to go.

    I don't have a Boeing, but I use the Phidgets LED64, it's fantastic and easy to use. As Bob says download FS2Phidgets here:

    Alan is working on new versions, that allow you to test Phidget interfaces, without the actual interface. It won't light up your lights, but you'll be able to see how it works.

    Yes I have that, but there is not an option for say, Speed Barke Extended, Landing Gear in transit, landing gear down & Locked, etc. Unless I'm missing something. And I would need to know the offset too. Looks like this one is for pmsystems, as that is the ini it points too.

    I guess i'm going to reply tomyself. I've done alott of looking around, and so far, have not found any references to the MIP annunciators of the B737NG, or found another user that is using it. Maybe i'm overlooking, or not looking in the right place. But...if I discover anything for Phidgets, I will post it here.

    Ahhhh I see.... Well the problem is you need software that has an offset for the anounceator. FS does not support them. So you would need like EPIC to actually build the logic for it. I do not know if that is possiblke with Phidgets or not. One of the reasons I use EPIC.

    Bob, Thanks for that reply. I have read that Phidgets is good, but limited. And from your comment, that is dead on. Guess I could dust off some of the old VB skillsets and try to write it, but the offsets are the issue.

    Rodney, I guess I don't quite understand what you're trying to do. Regarding Phidgets.... what limitations?????

    Phidgets

    He wants to turn the MIP enunciators on and off. I am not sure if anyone's software does this yet. I am sure it can be programed in PMSystems. Do you know of something different?

    You can program anything you want in PMSystems. What's the annunciators for, what activates the lights in the real plane. You can set it in Phidgets also, just depend on how you set the parameters. Are we talking about this:"Speed Brake Extended, Landing Gear in transit, landing gear down & Locked, etc."
